Loved Plantation, yes things may be a little run down and in need of repair and a spruce up, though staff are friendly and are proud and are trying to do their best with what they are provided from the property owners.
Awesome for kids, beautiful beaches and location, food is o.k., accommodation can do with a remodel though rooms are clean, comfortable, spacious and air conditioned. The way we look at it is you are only sleeping in the rooms, you are walking out of your room and straight onto the white sand then crystal clear waters then it doesn't bother us!
Don't go with high expectations, you have to remember that you are getting for what you pay for, if you want 5* luxury stay elsewhere at the premium rate. On our latest visit to Fiji, we met family and ended up wasting 5 nights on Denarau prior to going to Plantation Island, we could not wait to get out of the place and experience the real Fiji. The 5 star major chain resorts may have all the luxuries but don't have the true Fijian hospitality, atmosphere or scenery. I would never stay on Denarau again, though I would stay at Plantation Island again in a heartbeat!
Our 6 year old enjoyed himself, loved the activities, kids club were awesome to him; and if he's happy, then our holiday is worthwhile!
